There were just 6 rounds played in Regular Season of BSN and we can clearly see which teams will fight for top positions and which will try to avoid bottom places.

The most surprising game was the first loss of Piratas (4-1) in Quebradillas on Monday night. Hosts were defeated by seventh ranked Leones (3-3) 92-87. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of Piratas. Leones made 26-of-31 free shots (83.9 percent) during the game, while Piratas only scored five points from the stripe. They outrebounded Piratas 45-31 including 32 on the defensive glass. Leones looked well-organized offensively handing out 24 assists. 25 personal fouls committed by Piratas helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. It was a good game for Dominican Victor Liz (188-86, agency: Basket Management Solutions) who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 30 points, 10 rebounds and 5 assists. American power forward Hakim Warrick (206-82, college: Syracuse) contributed with 23 points, 11 rebounds and 5 assists (went 7 for 7 at the free throw line) for the winners. American-Venezuelan Donta Smith (201-83, college: SE Illinois JC) replied with 14 points, 9 rebounds, 7 assists and 4 blocks for Piratas. Leones moved-up to fifth place, which they share with Fajardo. Piratas at the other side keep the second position with one game lost. Leones is looking forward to face Fajardo (#5) in the next round. Piratas will play against Indios in Mayaguez and are hoping to win this game.
BSN top team - Santeros (6-1) had no problems winning another game. This time they beat seventh ranked Vaqueros (2-4) in Bayamon 93-76. Egyptian-American center Omar Samhan (211-88, college: St.Mary's, CA) scored 18 points to lead the charge for the winners and Alex Abreu chipped in 11 points and 7 assists during the contest. The best for the losing side was Nigerian center Jeleel Akindele (216-83, college: Chicago St., agency: BeoBasket) with 13 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Santeros have a solid three-game winning streak. They maintain first position with 6-1 record. Vaqueros at the other side keep the seventh place with four games lost. They share the position with San German. Both teams do not play next round, which will be an opportunity for some rest.
A very close game took place in Mayaguez between Capitanes and Indios. Fifth ranked Capitanes (3-2) got a very close victory on the road over 9th ranked Indios (1-5). Capitanes managed to escape with a 2-point win 90-88 on Monday evening. David Huertas notched 31 points and 5 assists to lead the effort. Capitanes' coach used an eleven-player rotation in such tough game. Even a double-double of 15 points, 10 rebounds and 4 assists by David Laury did not help to save the game for Indios. Defending champion moved-up to fourth place. Indios lost third consecutive game. They dropped to the tenth position with five games lost. Capitanes will meet Brujos (#9) in the next round where they are favorite. Indios will play against the league's second-placed Piratas and hope to win that game.
A very interesting game took place in . It ended with only three-point home defeat of higher ranked Fajardo (3-3) to tenth ranked Brujos (2-5) 71-68 on Tuesday evening. The best player for the winners was Leon Williams who had a double-double by scoring 13 points and 12 rebounds. Fajardo's coach Allans Colon rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Brujos moved-up to ninth place. Fajardo at the other side keeps the fifth position with three games lost. Brujos' next round opponent will be higher ranked Capitanes (#4) in Arecibo and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Fajardo will play at home against Leones and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

In the last game of round 6 San German were beaten by Humacao on the road 112-107.
The most impressive performance of 6th round was 20 points and 11 assists by Carlos Arroyo of Fajardo.

Fajardo will play at home against Leones and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
